My little Evangeline

I always said that when I start having kids, I’ll write about them,
Now that the time is near to have you, I think it’s time to start,
It’s the least I can do to pass the long days of waiting for you,
I can’t wait to see you, see what you look like,
I like to think of you as a reincarnation,
I’ll explain when you’re old enough to understand

Despite the poem I wrote before this one,
I don’t feel that way about you anymore,
Now I’m more than excited to have and keep you,
I don’t care if people don’t like it,
You don’t need them, you only need me

It doesn’t matter if they accept you,
I’ll always love you, even if you turn out like me,
I want to teach you all I know, and then some,
I hope that you’re as open-minded as I am and very accepting towards people,
That is something I know I will pass down to you

(This poem is dedicated to my daughter who is now three years old. I wrote this poem when 18 and I was six months pregnant with her. When she's older, I'll give her this poem so she knows how much I love her. Also, for the line "Despite the poem I wrote before this one", the poem I wrote before this one, I was about a month into my pregnancy, and I'll also post that poem up as well so you can see how much has changed. I don't want to get into too much detail about it, so you'll have to read it for yourself.
